Web Accessibility Policy

Home  >  Web Accessibility Policy

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires State, local government, educational, and public websites be made accessible. The ultimate goal is to reduce barriers that prevent people with disabilities from accessing and interacting with websites.

Web accessibility goes beyond those with visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, or neurological disabilities. An accessible web is one that may be accessed using any browser, on any device and by any user. The web is an increasingly important resource in many aspects of life: education, employment, government, commerce, health care, recreation, and more. It is essential that the web be accessible in order to provide equal access and equal opportunity.

The Town of Norfolk's website is developed using up-to-date markup and development techniques, easy and accessible to use navigation and proper informational page structures. This is all done in order to help meet web accessibility standards and to ensure future compatibility with current and future interfaces.
